“A jewel of a find”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

A jewel of a find and fabulous getaway for couples and families on the southern coast of Lesbos. Hotel owners Takis and Jenny cater to your every need from the moment you arrive - from hiking tips to car rides into nearby Polichnitos. We stayed for a week and ate all our meals at the hotel. The food was terrific - fresh, tasty, and very Greek. Don't expect to lose weight here! Good beach for sunning and swimming (bring beach shoes for the rocky slabs underwater) and lovely short hikes in the area through olive groves and along the long curving shore. And one thing that is important to us, and a sign of character, is the genuine kindness that Jenny and Takis showed to animals. All in all, an excellent experience in a wonderfully isolated and scenic part of Lesbos. John and Gayl

What a rare island gem this Vatera hotel on Lesbos is, family owned and run. It is managed by a wonderful young brother & sister team Takis & Tzeni (Jennie), having been built by their parents who had an eye for detail and charm. Takis & Jennie are amazing hosts, making you feel right at home, and that is the feeling you get from when they first greet you at the top of the steps at the entrance, to the time you leave. My first stay was in August 2010 with family & friends. My second in August 2012 with family & my best friend. My third visit was August 2013 with my older sister. I'm currently saving to return again this year 2014 on my own (I always meet some awesome people) The hotel is full of memorabilia, and is very well maintained, the rooms are large, clean and air conditioned for those beautiful warm summer Aegean sea breezes. The authentic Greek fare is superb and a must try from their own restaurant. The hotel has 2 verandahs, an upper and the lower is located directly across the road from the hotel just a few steps down to the beach. Rest & relaxation is assured if you want it and you can travel to & from the hotel to anywhere on the island for a day trip. (Being Aussie helps, cause we're used to driving to towns 3 or 4 hours away and back in one day). I would highly recommend a stay here, soak up the sun, enjoy the Aegean Sea and it's breezes and most of all the company of your hosts Takis & Jennie. Can't wait to be back there again soon! :)

Room Tip: The rooms have Great views, either a side room or front room - you won't be disappointed!

What more to add than to be in complete agreement with the previous reviews concerning this lovely, warm, comfortable and cozy hotel.

We had the intention to spend just one night at Vatera but were so delighted by our very knowledgeable hosts and the place that ended up spending 3. The food was excellent, the service outstanding, kind and friendly.
There is no swimming pool but a lovely clean beach right in front of the hotel and nobody needs a fitness center there. Just cross the quiet road and have a good swim!
We really felt at home and pampered like nowhere else in the island.

Room Tip: Rooms by the seaside. They have a perfect size and a large balcony

Me and my best friend were looking for a 'Greek' place to stay. We wanted to see a beach that isn't covered with sun loungers and a location that isn't packed with foreign tourists. We've found this gem of a place were most of the tourists are Greek, Vatera is just perfect. The hotel was very comfortable, food to die for and staff extremely helpful even giving us lifts and lots of advice. Highly recommended.
we travelled in end of May 2011

We haven't stayed a full fortnight in just one hotel in our lives nor written a Trip Advisor review but then we have never been treated quite as well as we were at this hotel. Brother & sister Takis & Jenny (Jenni? Tzeni?) go out of their way to be friendly & generous hosts, Takis coming out of the hotel as we arrived to greet us by name & help with bags. They also do their upmost to try to anticipate the guests needs, Jenny quickly noting the first thing I need when I arrive for breakfast is to have a cup of tea thrust into my hand. If you ask for advice on any matter regarding the Island they are a font of knowledge having spent most of their lives there & as they had an American mother their English is impeccable. Above all they genuinely seem to want you to have a great stay at their hotel.

We have travelled to a number of Greek Islands over a number of years many with their own individual customs & a particular one on Lesbos seems to be of providing super size portions of food! The Vatera Beach Hotel preserves this tradition & ups the anti by making it all delicious with a mixture of lesser known traditional dishes, old favourites, with their chefs (whose name I have forgotten,shame on me) new take on them & new recipes. A short talk with Jenny & you soon realise that in her opinion the basis of a good meal starts with the best ingredients. Who am I to argue with that.

I could say more but the best way to experience Vatera & the Vatera Beach Hotel is to go

Lesvos is a real paradise and I believe we were very lucky to choose Vatera Beach for our holiday, and especially Hotel Vatera Beach took a special place in our hearth and memories.

As I read very good comments before, my expectations were quite high when we first arrived to the hotel. Takis and Jennie are both elevated and tasteful people so even though their hotel is a simple boutique hotel, I found it elegant as well.

The room, service, ambiance, location are all perfect enough to have relaxing and happy moments with your family. Especially their cuisine is really beyond special. Our one year old son quickly became a fun of their plates. We all enjoyed our stay at Hotel Vatera Beach and for sure we would like to go back there again.

I sincerely advise this place to the people who are not looking for luxurious but wants to enjoy a relaxing ambiance, nice beach, wonderful sea, best food and genuinely service.

We stayed for two weeks on a walking holiday. Takis and Jenny went out of their way to meet our needs, helping us in many ways. We did not have a car and Takis gave us lifts to help with our walks, and gave us advice about where to go. We enjoyed our meals on the terrace on the sea front. We had a nice room with a sea facing balcony though the shower was a bit cramped. I don't think we have stayed in a hotel where the family was so involved and so anxious to make our stay enjoyable. Thanks for everything.
